How to Make Bubble Foam Snow
Making thick frothy bubble foam for sensory play is super easy! You’ll need 2 parts water and 1 part bubble bath. I find the non-organic brands work best.
Grab a mixing bowl and add 2 parts water and 1 part bubble bath, that’s it! Use a hand mixer the easily and quickly whip up the bubbles. Spoon out the bubble foam into your sensory bin or sensory table. Be sure to not to include the water.
How to Set Up Bubble Snow Foam Winter Sensory Bin
Place all of your white bubble foam into a sensory bin and add some craft snowflakes. I would let your little ones add them. They will eventually sink and they can search for them as they play.
Next add some toy trucks and other construction vehicles. I added our Duplo LEGO trucks which were perfect.
How they Played with the Bubble Snow Foam Winter Sensory Bin
They drove around in the snow collecting it with the diggers and dumping it from one spot to another. They dug for snowflakes and collected them in the trucks. My kids pretended they were snowplows and tried to clear the bubble foam to see the bottom of the sensory bin.
They had a blast. This lasted much longer than I thought for such an easy set. But I always find its the simplest activities that do the best.
This activity is great for kids 2 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7.5 year old.

Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
